This would reduce the amount of "dialog spam" users get to see.

To make this work we need to do these things:

* Measure how often requestPermission() is invoked without user gesture.
* Note in the developer console that requestPermission() without user gesture is deprecated to drive down the measurement and create awareness.

Potentially we should also do some outreach, e.g., a blog post?
Priority: -- → P2
Do you know if the same happens for ServiceWorkerContainer.register too (this is used to register with the browser for Push Notifications)?
